Family Reach bridges the gap between hospital and home.
We work directly with more than 400 oncology social workers at hospitals across the country to provide thousands of families in cancer treatment with critical financial assistance. Since 2003, we’ve helped more than 45,000 individuals from 49 states.
Our growing network of supporters made it possible for Family Reach to assist more than five times as many individuals in 2016 than in 2012, an astonishing 520% increase in five years.
72% of the families we serve reported their household income was reduced by at least 50% after a cancer diagnosis.
49% are surviving on a post-diagnosis income of less than $24,250.
33% are single-parent households.
We’ve allocated more than $7.5 million in financial assistance to families battling cancer. Over the last 10 years, our new programs and expanded scope have also provided thousands of individuals with critical financial navigation and education.
Our Financial Handbook has provided more than 10,000 families with critical information.
We’ve distributed more than $400,000 in parking passes and gift cards.
We’ve provided over 6,000 grants to directly cover everyday living expenses.
